    .223 Rifle- 1 year after purchase

    Posted by Donny V on Dec 11th 2022

    This rifle is quite simply the best value in firearms I personally have ever experienced in my lifetime. Myself as well as my father and 2 uncles all have at least 1 model as well as a more expensive model- in all cases, the GLFA rifles outperform the more expensive brands- including both Stag Arms and Smith and Wesson. The fact that they have not raised the price in the last year speaks to the company’s character and desire to make good quality guns for people in the USA. God Bless America. Buy one of these bad boys to hold while you say it, and it sounds even cooler.

    100% reliable, Amazing Value for Price

    Posted by Alex R on Nov 15th 2022

    Picked up my GLFA 223 Wylde back in June at a local dealer here in Mid Michigan. I have roughly 500 rounds through the rifle split evenly between 556 and 223 with zero malfunctions. The rifle has fed every type of ammo I’ve thrown at it, and I have used 4 different brands of mags, all functioning flawlessly. I haven’t personally shot farther out than 150 yds, but this rifle will absolutely drive nails if it’s required of it. Will 1000% be purchasing another rifle from GLFA

    Bought my gl-15 from my local dealer a few months ago and have since out about 600 rounds through it. Amazing rifle for the price and very accurate. Only issue I had was the castle but wasn’t stacked and started coming loose that’s the only reason I have it 4 stars. Been a great rifle so far and looks awesome too.

    GLFA .223 Wylde Rifle

    Posted by Matthew Brooks on Oct 4th 2022

    Bought one of these when GLFA was a new company. Have put many thousands of rounds down range. This rifle is an absolute tack driver, I consistently shoot sub moa @ 100 yards with a Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6. Very reliable quality firearm right out of the box. So glad GLFA is doing well as a company and look forward to buying a new GLFA rifle in a different caliber and color. " I will run my GLFA next to your DD or LWRC all day long. I have all 3 and the one I bought for under $800.00 wins the day every time". Keep up the great work fellas!

    Excellent build.

    Posted by Mike P. on Sep 2nd 2022

    In my state, I needed to have the muzzle brake pin welded to the barrel. My armorer had to have a special drill bit ordered because none of his current bits were strong enough to drill into the HBAR 416R SS barrel on my gun. (He's pin welded many AR barrels, this was the first time he's needed a stronger drill bit to get through the steel). I consider that a good testament to the quality of the materials used and the manufacturing process.

    .223 Wylde rifle.

    Posted by Paul Daehling on Jun 12th 2022

    Just took my brand new GLFA .223 Wylde rifle out to the range for the first time today. Only purchased it two days prior and kind of rushed through setting it up before taking it out. No dramas though. The rifle performed flawlessly and shot groupings far tighter than I am normally capable of. It is by far the most inherently accurate rifle I have ever owned and consistently performed with a variety of .223 and 5.56 ammunition at 50 and 100 yard ranges. I will not hesitate to recommend you guys to anybody looking for an AR. Great rifle!

    Easy Choice

    Posted by Luke on Dec 10th 2021

    Extremely easy and smooth process. Everyone was very helpful. This gun is just smooth with little kickback. Might have to buy another.

    So I wanted a light weight ar to have for speed shooting. Little heavy up front but that is from the rail. But this gun has no recoil that all. Put 5 shots in a 6in target from 10 yards and did it rather fast.
